    Vikramaditya is already in service. And this is not a fair comparison anyway, it would be more apt to compare this with the Liaoning program.
    For CV-17, a more proper comparison would be INS Vikrant.

    Lastly, have in mind that construction for CV-17 did not start on March 2015, but much earlier.

    Why do you even want to bring the Indians into picture? It will only end in flame war. (Oh... btw, Vikramaditya had already been commissioned and is running with a full fleet of MiG29K and CV-17 was laid down on Nov 2013 not March 2015.)

    At the moment there are only four countries building aircraft carriers ... USA, China, the UK and India

    China will have at least 3 operational carriers by 2025, 2 for the UK and India and 1 for Russia
